Allen & Overy has named a relative newcomer to the firm as its next German managing partner, with the incumbent preparing to step down at the end of this year.
Gottfried Breuninger, who joined the magic circle firm in 2008 from the Munich office of Shearman & Sterling, has been appointed to the role, according to German legal magazine Juve.
